Further to the last e-mail:
I removed apm using aptitude, it removed libapm0 and powermgmt-base as
well. Then I checked in my BIOS setup and there's no mention anywhere
of apm though acpi defaults to S1 (I think that's "shutdown" as opposed
to "sleep" or "suspend").
Yet I find in my log:
Aug 8 19:22:35 localhost kernel: apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver
Aug 8 19:22:35 localhost kernel: apm: overridden by ACPI.
Aug 8 19:23:50 localhost kernel: apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver
Aug 8 19:23:50 localhost kernel: apm: overridden by ACPI.
and apm.ko is at /lib/modules/2.6.8-3-k7/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.ko .
Should it not have been removed with the other apm-related bits?
apm.ko is the kernel module which contains the APM routines. As such it
is part of the kernel-image-2.6.8-3-k7 package. Removing the apm daemon
and apm-related library/tools packages does not (and should not) result
in the removal of kernel modules.
Ah. I should have realised. I feel silly... :)
I was surprised it appeared in the logs, though. It does not appear in
The only thing in Control Centre under Power Control is Laptop
Battery. It reports:
Your computer seems to have a partial ACPI installation. ACPI was
probably enabled, but some of the sub-options were not - you need to
enable at least 'AC Adaptor' and 'Control Method Battery' and then
rebuild your kernel.
Should there be more under Power Control? If so, how do I get it there?
Try to modprobe "ac", "power" and "battery" and check if that makes any
acpi-related modules in lsmod;
thermal 12816 0
fan 4044 0
button 6360 0
processor 17392 1 thermal
ac 4876 0
battery 9484 0
Two of them are there. I modprobed power...
Yewdales-lodge:~# modprobe power
